Schick Quattro Disposables Review & Giveaway




We were given the opportunity to review Schick Quatro disposables as part of the "Play it Smooth" promotion. Having a hubby who swears by Schick (Schick Quatro Cartridges), and the fact that we enjoy music, we decided that this would be a fun one!

"Play it Smooth", is a fun promotion! Introducing new songs for the Rock Band 3 Pro-tracks! Each specially marked package of Schick Quatro disposables includes a code that will give you access to 3 free pro-tracks! Sounds fun right?!

We found a few kinks! When we visited the site to redeem our codes, we were sent email confirmation links...no biggie, most sites are doing this, and I find it good that they are making sure that people are not using bogus emails! However, our links to confirm our email, did not work. We've tried in IE, Firefox, and Safari. We could not find any technical support to help with this matter.

On to the shaving experience. I love the moisturizing strip! It was a nice change of pace from what I usually use, and did help the blade glide smoother than what it could have! However the shave wasn't as close and felt like the blades were dragging and pulling the hair rather than gracefully slicing it. 

My husband had the same problem with the ones he tried. The sound, while he shaved, made me shiver. He would like to see the disposables match the performance of the cartridges that he uses on a daily basis. 

The handles were very comfortable and easy to hold on to! I did really like that! I tried a second shave...and it did seem a little better, but the same result was not met on my legs. Still rough and not delicately done.  Even with 3 (on mine) and 4 (on his) blades on each head, we both expected a better shave. I will be keeping these on hand for back up, as they do get the job done!

WIN IT!!! Schick has offered to send one of my loyal readers a pack of 4 Schick Quattro disposable razors! Open to US only residents, you simply need to follow me publicly using Google Friend Connect, and leave me a comment telling me about the first time you shaved! Be sure to leave your email using "at" and "dot" instead of "@" and "." to avoid spam bots!

Giveaway will end promptly at 11:59pm on 19 April 2011. Winner will be announced the following day!
